    I've wanted to see this for many years and as we were planning to spend the night in Oban I thought I'd make the effort to find it.

    I'm a big fan of 50's 60's GPO architecture at the best of times but couple it with a stunning location and it makes quite a sight.
    It looks like anything of real scrap value was removed from the building after closure and since then the estate which now owns the building has used parts of it for agricultural storage, but on the most part it has just been left to slowly decay. There was enough left inside to get an idea of what the rooms were used for, and it was good to see some retro kitchen and bathroom epic, all slowly rusting away.

    The little detail I enjoyed seeing most was the remaining clock, once part of a trio with little perspex labels underneath "G.M.T", "Cornerbrook", "Montreal". Even the clock had a tiny "G.P.O" livery on the face.

    All in all epic building in an epic location. I'd say there are few work places in Britain which have had a more beautiful view! Saying that, I bet it was bloody freezing in there in the winter!

    I'm sad we never got a glimpse of the House that all those grounds lead to!
